American Woman is an 2019 American-Canadian drama film written and directed by Semi Chellas, in her feature directorial debut. It stars Hong Chau, Sarah Gadon, John Gallagher Jr., Lola Kirke, David Cubitt, Jordan Pettle, Richard Walters and Ellen Burstyn. It is based on the 2003 novel of the same title by Susan Choi.

It had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 28, 2019. It is scheduled to be released in Canada on June 30, 2020, by Elevation Pictures.


Tribeca Film Festival reports the synopsis, "Adept at living off the grid ever since she masterminded an act of violence against the American government, 25-year-old former radical Jenny Shimada (Hong Chau) agrees to take care of three fugitives who are on the run. One of them, the kidnapped granddaughter of a wealthy newspaper magnate (Sarah Gadon), has become a national celebrity for embracing her captors’ ideology and joining their revolutionary cell. Semi Chellas (Mad Men, The Romanoffs) makes her directorial debut with this fictional account of the real-life woman who cared for heiress Patty Hearst after she was abducted."[1]



In September 2017, it was announced Hong Chau had joined the cast of the film, with Semi Chellas directing from a screenplay she wrote. Killer Films will produce the film.[2]


The film had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 28, 2019.[3] It had a gala premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2019.[4][5]


As of July 2020, 54% of the thirteen reviews compiled by Rotten Tomatoes are positive, with an average rating of 5.94/10.[6] The Globe and Mail calls it a "Canadian heist thriller American Woman knows when to simmer and when to boil over."[7]

It competed in the Calgary International Film Festival in 2019, where it was awarded a Special Jury Mention for Acting. [8] It also won Best Picture, Best Director (Semi Chellas), Best Actress (Hong Chau), and Best Cinematography (Gregory Middleton) at the Downtown Los Angeles Film Festival in 2019.[9]
